How to cook fresh green beans

Green beans: These slender, crunchy, surprisingly addictive and comforting veggies are a favorite of many, especially during the holidays. Happily, we’ve expanded beyond the classic green bean casserole, a soggy mess with artificial high-sodium toppings adding to the chaos. But we’ve got you covered. We’ve chosen 12 of the most popular green bean recipes (which include green beans with almonds) and also explain how to cook green beans in the oven, keeping your beans green when cooking, and how to trim beans quickly.

  • Recipe

    This from-scratch update of the classic green bean casserole eschews canned cream of mushroom soup and thicker green beans in favor of a fresh mushroom cream sauce and slender haricots verts. Fried shallots stand in for the iconic fried onion topping.Get the Recipe: Baked Haricots Verts with Fried Shallots.

  • Recipe

    Green beans amandine—beans tossed with toasted almonds and a lemon-butter sauce—is a classic. But this riff has much richer almond flavor because the beans are sautéed in the butter mixture in which the nuts were toasted. Using thin haricots verts makes the dish even more special; regular green beans are fine, too, but they’ll take longer to blanch. To speed your prep, see our Test Kitchen tip on how to quickly trim a lot of beans. Get the Recipe: Green Beans Amandine with Almonds and Garlic.

  • Recipe

    You can jazz up this basic recipe by adding Rosemary-Lemon Thyme Oil or Moroccan Spice Rub when you toss the green beans with olive oil and salt and pepper before roasting. Or toss the green beans with Sesame Sea Salt, Caramelized Shallot Butter, Ginger-Lemon Soy Splash, or Toasted Coriander & Garlic Oil after they come out of the oven.

  • Recipe

    Tahini is a brilliant pantry ingredient to keep on hand for a creamy yet no-cook sauce. Here it brings a touch of Mediterranean flavor to simple steamed green beans. Serve with grilled lamb or shrimp. Get the Recipe: Green Beans with Tahini.

  • Recipe

    Though this dish doesn’t cook as long as some other slow-cooked Italian vegetables, it takes the green beans past the usual crisp-tender and lets them cook until fully softened. It’s quite a treat not to hear them squeaking with every bite, and their lovely flavor is more pronounced when cooked a bit longer.

I love these green beans SO much that I wanna KISS THEM.

Not like in a romantic way. I know you think that I am a weird person, but I hope not SO weird that I go around kissing vegetables.

I mean like Keep It Simple Stupid.

These sautéed grean beans, with dreamy, CRISPY pieces of rich prosciutto are SO simple yet insanely, addictingly YUM.

Like 4 pantry-essential ingredients kinda easy. Like, you could probably make them in your sleep kinda easy. Easier than my most favorite easy gluten free stuffing kinda E to the Z.

You get the picture.

How-EV-Er, as much as I want to impress you with my magical abilities to create flavor OVERLOAD from almost NO INGREDIENTS, I can’t.
